    I've actually had a better experience on the new site for Passholders...which is ironic! On the old site I always got the screen to "add a pass." So many people are having trouble with the new one.

    The AP Discount is for Annual Passholders. They release room only and package discount for people that have Annual Passes, sometimes up to 40% off which is often better than the discounts offered to the general public. They only release them in chunks though...like right now you can only book using an AP discount for stays through March 22nd. We all have April & beyond trips to book, and are waiting for the discounts to be released for those dates.

    Welcome to the board!

    Stinks that there is a March/April discount for FL Residents already but nothing for AP, even FL Res AP holders. :)

    I'm looking for a free dining pin or code. I'm a florida resident but they don't have any free dining deals for April :worried: We are wanting to stay at AOA in the LM room, but the rep said that because its still such a *NEW* resort and limited rooms, they aren't discounting these rooms at all, so a free dining code would be perfect! Hoping something pops up soon!

    March?! How is that even possible? We have reservations for April and our bill is due the first week in March! If I have to pay the full price and then find out they release a discount, how fair is that? That doesn't seem right.

    When I booked back in September they told me "call back in January, that is usually when the passholder rate is released so we can apply that to your reservation!".

    We are currently booked offsite for Easter week. Pretty sure that is where we will end up, but I keep hoping for an AP discount....even with rental car + offsite hotel we are beating Disney values by $30 a day, Easter week prices are crazy non-discounted!

    I know....and there are still SO many empty rooms. Last year disney just left them empty (thus we were upgraded at both of our resorts!). It will be interesting to see if they do the same this year or if they open up some deals. Hoping for AP....

    I'm there with you.

    Air travel booked.
    Stroller purchased.
    Orlando family notified.
    Room? Yet to be determined.

    I REALLY REALLY REALLY want to get our family into the Animal Kingdom Lodge this trip. It will be our first encounter with a Deluxe. I want it to be even cheaper than the Spring Room Only discount, though.

    C'mon Disney! I want the opportunity to hand over my paycheck! :flower3:

    With the AP pass price increase, a discount at a peak time really is the only way I will consider getting another AP. Now I understand it is a bonus and not somethine to count on, however I will need to purchase 4 when this pass runs out and at that price I could pay for an entire trip at a value.

    I get the pass to come more often. With this pass we will have gotten three trips out of it, (we purchased before the last increase). The last trip we stayed at the Grand Floridian with a AP discount. It was way more than we usually spend, (one night was rack rate!!!!), but we felt like we were saving money with the discount.

    Yes my family will still come to Disney without a discount. But I am willing to spend a lot more money AT Disney with a discount.

    Booked via current promo but waiting for early June AP rates. It's been awhile since i bought an AP. Need to activate it next trip.

    Notice the mousesavers chart indicates that last year the rates for 3/9 to 6/14 were 1st released on 1/9 (exp 2/8) and again on 2/9 (exp 6/14).

    Other than trying to challenge the market :bitelip:, wonder why they're so slow to roll AP rates out this year?:confused3
